8th round of talks between Centre, farmer Unions concludes yesterday; next meet on Jan 15

The next round of talks between the Centre and farmer leaders will be held on 15th of this month. Briefing media after the eighth round of talks with representatives of farmers’ unions, Agriculture and Farmer Welfare Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said, discussion on the farm laws was taken up, but no decision could be made. He said, the government urged that if farmer unions give an option other than repealing, it will consider it, but no option could be presented, so the meeting was concluded.

The Minister said, those supporting the protest are of the view that the laws be repealed and there are many others who support the laws. He said, the government is continuously talking to the unions who want these laws to be repealed and it will also give appointment to those supporting the laws, when they request the government.
